Just Married


Marrying the one you love is big news, the kind you want to shout from highest of mountains.  Colourful preparations took place for a very important occasion.  Today, the marriage ceremony of Cuba Peace and Antioco Peace took place in the heart of Tapirape tribe's camp, situated far north in Rio Solimoes.  Chieftess Evasanz performed the ceremonial ritual witnessed by all in the joining of their souls.  The presentation of a gifts were that of food, collected by neighbouring tribes, friends and family.  A traditional dance took place shortly after, to which I had just arrived in order to join and shortly left thereafter knowing there were no drinks provided.



evasanz25 Verino: "I would like to say that I am happy to see our partner who has joined today happy and also I want to set an example as the couple that gives more love to all when they are next to them."

Tribes-The Xoco
The first signs of a new day arose, igniting the autumn colours of the tree tops; the place where I rest my weary head.  The light creating a beautiful canvas, I feel my eyes smile arising a cosiness to my inner core.  My mind wandered to those of the Xoco tribe, turning my gaze to face the warmth of the orange glow and before I knew it, I was on my feet in the heart of their camp.
Khaing soon emerged from the canopy of the arms of the trees as beams of light outlined her feminine curves...she neared closer to me "Welcome Aara."  I asked to know about  the Xoco tribal history.  She seemed to lighten with joy at my interest as more of the Xoco people awoke to the sound of our voices.

"It's one of the oldest tribes in Amazon and our name 'Xoco' actually means 'Little sisters' in Nahualtl, the ancient Aztec language", she began to tell me.  "I can also answer other questions, AaRa.  Our language is sadly …

Día de Muertos-Xoco Tribe

Finally but not least, my journey across Amazon River ended where it should have all began....the Xoco Tribe!. known for being one the oldest established Tribe in the whole entire of Amazon Jungle. I have watched this Tribe grow in numbers, their friendliness towards newcomers fills me with a sense of delight. It is to no surprise that i find myself enchanted by their captivated charms, which spirals anyone's heart into a joyous rapture. 
They too have been busy in celebrations, as i arrived right bang into the heart of the camp. Xoco situated far North, where the mountainous waterfall cascade to the deafening roar of the waters.

Día de Muertos-Unity Unites

Each new day I awake, eyes raised to the strong arms of the trees, seeking out a new inspiration that will make me stand in awe. Endlessly my sight searches the vast lands i call home.....this is Amazon! Autumn is here! arriving with slow grace, the flamboyant colours of the fallen leaves from reds to burnt orange....it is breathtakingly beautiful. The crisp crunch underfoot of the morning frost, each step awaking my senses to mother earth. There is a calmness that speaks to me in a beauty silent way, as i made my way over to the gardens of Unity.
The sweet scent of the freshly arranged flowers drew me closer, for then! my heart danced with eternal joy at their vibrant display.

Deep In The Amazon JungleUp Coming Events-Día de Muertos

It's not often you get to actually get to wander the Rain-Forest in peace, without a few encounters along the way. My journey tonight took me across the rivers and vast landscapes that stretch as far as the eye can see.
 First stop was Kamayura Tribe that nestles closely to Crocodile swamp in the Northwest, they have been busy at work decorating the entire Tribe for Dia de Muertos. Next stop, Makatarli Tribe, who by far was one of the first that i had noticed in honouring the Day Of The Dead.
 My journey took me far North, Bandit Territory high upon the rocky cliffs.....and the one place you can get a decent drink around here *Grins*...That's if Beast hasn't sipped the last of the supplies.
 And last but not least backtracking over to the towering mountains that sits shadowing the Kamayura Tribe , where another group known as the Raiders are located. I seized the opportunity to take a quick look at their base to respectfu…

Exclusive Interview With Huffy
I had the chance to catch up with Huffy, and asked him a few questions about his time in the Amazon so far. Huffy is in a league of is own, and somewhat of a mystery...to me. A chance to actually talk with him, took place late into the early hours, just as the orange skies finally sunk behind the mountains. He sat across from me, with a red velvet crown upon his head, a fine suit and perched on his lap sat a beautiful female named Mika.


Aα尺α: "Thank you for taking some time with me today, this publication will be broadcast across all of the Amazon River for all rogues and natives to read!" *giggles*

Aα尺α: smiles across to Huffy, "Now then, word has it that you have been in this jungle for years, you must have seen and done some exciting things in your time in such a dangerous place, tell us...maybe one or two of your most fondest memories here?"

Huffy chewing on the end of a cigar, "Let's get this show on the ro…
